hob to oven pan

Last Updated on January 11, 2022

Love the magic of hobs and ovens? Then a hob to oven pan is a must. If you are interested in upgrading your kitchen with these useful utensils, our guide can suggest the best choices for you!

Product Testing & Comparison

Our reviewer used specific guidelines to determine the best of the best:

  1. Lifetime use (non-toxic, scratch free, warranty)
  2. Ease of use (handles/thermal control)
  3. Accountrements (Lid, pan set)

The biggest determinant of quality was that it was a nonstick, nontoxic pan. Cast iron or not, any warranty, scratch resistance, and such will improve each pan’s placement on this list. Additionally, eas of use is vital here. That means handles shouldn’t get too hot or at least be shielded by rubber or silicone, and it should disperse heat evenly.

The final determinant of quality was whether or not the pan was alone or if it came with friends. That means lids, other pans, or other addons boosted some pans onto our list, and a few right off of it.


Our Top 3 Hob To Oven Pan Picks
1. The Best Hob To Oven Pan By Circulon
2. The Best Frying Pan By Tefal
3. The Best Hob To Oven Casserole By Villeroy & Boch


The Best Hob To Oven Pans Reviewed In 2022


1. The Momentum By Circulon (Product #84202)

Brilliant Casserole Dish By Circulon

Specifications:

  • Item dimensions L x W x H: 30 x 31.5 x 15.5 cm
  • Material: Aluminium
  • Special Features: Hard anodised, induction suitable, oven/dishwasher safe, PFOA free, nonstick

This pan, which can also be considered a shallow casserole dish, won the top spot on this list. It is forged from hard anodised technology and has a diameter of 30 cm. Since it’s twice as strong as stainless steel, you can cook your favourite meals in this pan for years!

The long-lasting dish promotes the even and efficient distribution of heat as well. Thanks to its non-stick coating, you can use little to no oil to cook your next masterpiece. 

The oven-safe dish is compatible with all hob types. It is also dishwasher safe, so you don’t have to do all the scrubbing! Finally, its PFOA-free construction has a lifetime guarantee.

This is a great pan that our reviewer only had minor gripes with. The largest of which was that the handles get hot (they’re metal and shielded by silicone, so it’s bound to happen) and the glass lid’s rim can build up grease. Otherwise, this is a wonderful pan that will last you a long time. And best of all, it’s PFOA free, making sure the nonstick surface is nontoxic and easy to use.

Pros

  • Heats quickly and evenly.
  • Lead-free and cadmium-free.
  • Comes with a soft-grip handle.
  • The glass lid locks in nutrients and flavour and allows you to see your cooking.

Cons

  • The handles might get hot when used too long.
  • The glass lid rim is prone to grease build-up.

2. The Excel All-in-One Frying Pan By Tefal
(Product #G119S444)

Remarkable G119S444 Frying Pan By Tefal

Specifications:

  • Item dimensions L x W x H: ‎59.5 x 36 x 16.3 cm
  • Material: Titanium
  • Special Features: Frying strainer/cover

This exquisite frying pan has a non-stick coating that’s to die for. Reinforced by titanium particles, the non-stick surface will last 24 times longer than the inside of a regular iron pan. Indeed, this pan’s coating is said to be ultra-resistant to scratches for life – and that’s why we think it’s the best frying pan for your hob-to-oven recipes.

If you are a serious fry cook, you can get the all-in-one pan set that includes a vented glass lid, and stainless-steel steamer and skimmer. But you can also use it for other types of cooking. It’s convenient as a pan, a pot, a wok, a rice cooker or a baking and roasting dish.

The pan is compatible with induction hobs, gas hobs, and dishwashers.

Our reviewer loved this frying pan. It works wonders for frying various veg and meat, as well as functioning as a standard high-walled pan. It doesn’t come with a lid, which is a bit of a bummer, but it’s a cheap addition to find. The bowed base makes things a bit hard to move around, but once again, it’s not a dealbreaker. If you love frying foods and want a high-walled pan, this is a wonderful choice.

Pros

  • Sustains heat up to 250°C.
  • Great base, spreads heat evenly on all types of cookers.
  • The visible Thermo-Spot indicator serves a pre-heating function.
  • Its non-stick coating is metal utensil-friendly, so you won’t have to worry about scratching.
  • Comfortable and safe handles.

Cons

  • It comes without a lid (unless you purchase the whole set).
  • The bowed base makes content moved to the sides rather than the centre.

3. The Vivo – Best Hob To Oven Casserole By Villeroy & Boch (Product #CW0463)

Fantastic Casserole Pot By Villeroy & Boch

Specifications:

  • Item dimensions L x W x H: 31 x 24.5 x 17 cm
  • Material: Cast iron
  • Special Features: Oven safe, stove safe

There are plenty of reasons why this deceptively bland-looking pot won as our best casserole pick.

Carefully crafted from cast iron, the durability and heat properties already make it a welcome addition to any kitchen. But the 4.2-litre capacity, specifically, makes the pot is ideal for high-temperature searing or slow homestyle cooking. Its compact base is also compatible with all hob types while the self-basting lid seals in all the nutrients and taste.

You will use this pot for decades – a perk that comes with cast iron pots. But besides outliving the parrot, its design also ensures that the pot will never damage your worktops.

Our review loved the design and shape of this versatile pan. Her one gripe is that it’s cast iron, meaning that there will be specific care needed. Unfortunately, that means no dishwashing, no nonstick, and no soaking. Additionally, if you don’t mind caring for cast iron, though, this is a wonderful pan that’s quite affordable in comparison to other cast iron dishes of comparable makeup and size.

Pros

  • Can survive heat up to 230°C.
  • Beautiful black matte design.
  • Can be used as a Dutch oven to make bread.

Cons

  • Not dishwasher safe.
  • Doesn’t have a non-stick surface.

4. The Induction-Safe Best 2.5 Litre Casserole Dish By MasterClass (Product #MCMCRD20)

Lightweight Casserole Dish By MasterClass

Specifications:

  • Item dimensions L x W x H: ‎28 x 20 x 17 cm
  • Material: Aluminium
  • Special Features: Lightweight, 25-year warranty

Did you love the previous dish but it’s a bit too large? No, problem chef-person. We also picked this wonderful smaller-capacity pot that comes with nearly al of the same benefits.

The capacity is 2.5 litres which is perfect for couples and medium families. You can expect a non-stick surface, aluminium cast material, even heat distribution and lighter weight. The oven-safe dish has a stainless steel base which is suitable for all hobs and stovetops.

The lid is also designed to keep moisture in the pan, providing rich stews and extra-moist, slow-cooked meals. Best of all, you will get a 25-year warranty. 

This is a great budget dish, but its handles got too hot for our reviewer. First off, the 25-year warranty was such a great bonus feature that our reviewer couldn’t leave this out of the top 5 in our list. It’s dishwasher safe, lightweight, and oven-safe up to 200°C.

Pros

  • Dishwasher safe.
  • Lighteweight
  • The lightweight build makes handling easy.
  • Oven-safe up to 200°C temperature.

Cons

  • The handles get too hot in the oven.

5. The Elegant And Traditional Round Casserole By Dawsons Living (Product #SHAALEK)

Round Casserole Dish By Dawsons Living

Specifications:

  • Item dimensions L x W x H: 34.7 x 34.6 x 9.8 cm
  • Material: Cast iron
  • Special Features: 3 differently-sized models, 10-year warranty

You probably remember this tough oldie from your grandma’s stews. Indeed, this traditional design has been around for a long time. This modern take brings you all the quality of the past with the best materials and colours of today.

You can use the sturdy handles to place it on any heating source like hobs and spiral plates. It can be used like a Dutch oven, stew pot, pan, and to prepare your Sunday lunch.

The sleek design includes a tight-fitting lid, different colours and 3 sizes. The capacities include 5.2-litre, 3.4-litre and 2.7-litre pots.  

Our reviewer loved this as a basic cast iron pan. It’s nothing special (which is why it’s #5 on our list), but it’s guaranteed to last you long. As it’s cast iron, its big downside is that it requires special care and can’t be washed in a dishwasher or soaked. Another important note is that the lid is also not dishwasher safe – so keep it in mind.

Pros

  • A ten-year warranty.
  • Can maintain a 240°C oven temperature, and a gas mark 9.
  • Great heat distribution.

Cons

  • Not dishwasher safe.

6. The Momentum Best Hob-to-Oven Stock Pot By Circulon (Product #83795)

The Professional Ceramic Non-Stick Shallow Casserole Pan By ProCook

Specifications:

  • Item dimensions L x W x H: 19.5 x 30.5 x 28 cm
  • Material: Hard anodised aluminium
  • Special Features: Hard anodised, induction suitable, oven/dishwasher safe, PFOA free, nonstick

This was a tough one for our reviewer to place on the list. On one hand, it’s a great stockpot and in the same line as our #1 product. She loved how quickly and evenly it heated and was a big fan of its lead/cadmium/PFOA free make. Its soft-grip handles make it easy to move large batches of stock – assuming you don’t burn yourself.

Its big downfall is that its handles get hot, but more importantly, that it’s so big. Another good note is that this makes it hard to move from the hob to the oven, which is kinda the point of this list. Nonetheless, it’s a great product.

Pros

  • Heats quickly and evenly.
  • Lead-free and cadmium-free.
  • Comes with a soft-grip handle.
  • The glass lid locks in nutrients and flavour and allows you to see your cooking.

Cons

  • Metallic utensils might scratch it
  • Its size makes it hard to fit in some ovens
  • Handles get hot over time

7. The Best Griddle Pan For Hobs And Ovens, the Whatever Pan By Jean-Patrique (Product #

best oven griddle

Specifications:

  • Item dimensions L x W x H: 27 x 34 x 4.5 cm
  • Material: Die-cast aluminium
  • Special Features: PFOA/PFAS free, lead free, nickel free

This one is for griddle fans – and you won’t be disappointed. It’s stuffed to the gills with special features and designs. Let’s dive in!

This griddle pan is suitable to be used on any type of hob, stovetop, and inside the oven. It’s made from high-quality die-cast aluminium and coated with a non-stick surface.

You can look forward to cooking healthy meals as the pan and coating are both PFOA, PFAS, lead and nickel free.

Our reviewer loved the healthy construction of this pan and found that it was easy to use and move. The design makes it great for frying a roast and then basting/broiling in the oven, though it can get extremely hot – so move it carefully. Importantly, she burnt herself by underestimating how hot the handles can get. Otherwise, this is a wonderful (if small) pan.

Pros

  • Made from safe and durable materials.
  • Suitable for all cookers and ovens.
  • A good lid.
  • Easy to handle.

Cons

  • The pan can get very hot.

8. The Renowned Jamie Oliver Pan By Tefal (Product #H9129944)

The Renowned E85606 Jamie Oliver Pan By Tefal

Specifications:

  • Item dimensions L x W x H: 38 x 11 x 34 cm
  • Material: Aluminium
  • Special Features: Nonstick, scratch-resistant

This six-layered stainless steel pan is perfect if you love drip-free cooking. Thanks to its tall shape and integrated pouring rim, you can indeed enjoy drip-free pouring. But what else can you look forward to?

Coming as a never-seen-before innovation, the pan includes an integrated thermo-gauge that indicates when the device has reached the optimal frying temperature to start cooking. The strong base is suitable for all cookers and ovens. The stainless steel body is also protected by a non-stick coating (that is scratch resistance) and it can handle temperatures up to 260°C.

Our reviewer found that this pan worked admirably until it was roughed up a bit. It’s scratch resistant, not scratch proof. She ended up chipping and scratching this pan after some rough use (meaning she dropped it… whoops). Nonetheless, if you’re gentle and need a good basic pan, this is a good choice for a relatively affordable price.

Pros

  • The stainless steel handle is ergonomic.
  • Non-stick and non-scratch.
  • Good heat distribution.
  • Easy to clean.

Cons

  • Some customers reported chipping after some use.

9. The Best Pre-Seasoned Cast Iron Frying Pans By Nuovva (Product ASIN #B081RZNP56)

Specifications:

  • Item dimensions L x W x H: 19.8 x 5.1 cm (multiple sizes)
  • Material: Cast iron
  • Special Features: Oven safe, heavy duty, nonstick, pre-seasoned, pan set, chemical-free make

In case you’ve been looking for a good-quality set of pans rather than a single product then this could be the right choice for you.

Thanks to even heat distribution, the heavy-duty cast-iron pans improve your cooking and frying, even on grills, stoves or various hob types. The pre-seasoned non-stick pans promote a healthier lifestyle by requiring tiny amounts of fat to prepare delicious dishes.

Indeed, the non-stick pans can be used to sear, fry, sauté, grill, roast, bake, braise and also broil. The pans are fast, reliable, and durable.

Our reviewer loved that this was a decent, pre-seasoned cast iron set for a very affordable price (£26.99 at the time of publication for all three). Additionally, the big downsides are that they come with no lid, and require special care as they’re cast iron. Otherwise, these are quite good and serviceable pans.

Pros

  • Chemical-free coating.
  • Permanently non-stick.
  • The pans sizes are 15, 20 and 25 cm.
  • They’re incredibly versatile and can sustain temperatures up to 200°C.

Cons

  • The pans must be hand-washed only.
  • Lids are not included.

10. The Pre-Seasoned Cast Iron Skillet By KICHLY (Product #EU0311)

The Great Induction Frying Pan By Sky Light

Specifications:

  • Item dimensions L x W x H: 40 x 26 x 5
  • Material: Cast Iron
  • Special Features: Nonstick, preseasoned

This is another cast iron pan. That means that it has the same downsides and upsides as the others in this list. It doesn’t come with a lid, can’t be washed in a dishwasher, or soaked overnight. Nonetheless, this is a good cast iron pan for the cost (£16.99 at the time of publication).

Our reviewer loved that it had pouted sides, allowing pouring of soups or liquids to make serving and cleanup a bit easier. Additionally, It transfers easily between cooking methods, but gets quite hot – so have a glove nearby.

Pros

  • Preseasoned
  • PTFE, APEO and POFA free.
  • Allows pouring with pouted sides

Cons

  • Not dishwasher safe
  • No lid
  • Handle heats quickly

Your Buying Guide


A good hob to oven pan will last you a lifetime – but for the most satisfying results, you have to choose the right one. Here are the most important things to consider before you purchase.

  • Compatible Base – The base must be made from ferromagnetic metals. The best are cast iron and stainless steel.
  • Heat Distribution – The pan must be capable of even heat distribution.
  • Non-Stick and Non-Scratch – A pan with these qualities will produce perfect meals and drastically cut down on cleaning afterwards. 
  • Temperature sustainability – Purchase a pan that can handle temperatures that you like to cook with. The uppermost temperature limit will be available in the product description.

FAQ


Q: What pans can go from stove to oven?

A: Most stainless-steel pans and some titanium-coated pans can smoothly go from stove to oven. Still, you should always read the manufacturer’s specifications and check to see if their product is suitable for both appliances.

Q: Can you put an oven dish on the hob?

A: As long as its base is finished with heat-sustaining materials then yes, you can. However, this is only applicable for pans that explicitly state that they’re compatible with different hob types. Regular casserole pots that are coated with an all-ceramic or enamel build are not suited to direct heat from the hob.

Q: What kind of pans do professional chefs use?

A: Chefs use non-stick items made with high-quality materials and designs. The vessels are normally cast-iron or hard anodised pots.
